(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID2709
Official gene symbolGJB5
Full namegap junction protein, beta 5, 31.1kDa
Gene summaryGap junctions are conduits that allow the direct cell-to-cell passage of small cytoplasmic molecules, including ions, metabolic intermediates, and second messengers, and thereby mediate intercellular metabolic and electrical communication. Gap junction channels consist of connexin protein subunits, which are encoded by a multigene family.[supplied by OMIM]
